Recognitions keep on coming for Batavia's Graham Corp. The vacuum and heat transfer manufacturer has climbed 100 spots on the Forbes list of the 200 Best Small Companies and cracked the top ten, landing at No. 10 and boasting a 41 percent return on equity for the past 12 months. Forbes had this to say of the company:
Graham Corp., in Batavia, N.Y., makes pumps, condensers, vacuum and heat transfer equipment for heavy industry, especially oil refineries. Revenue increased 31% last year and the backlog 40%. The domestic, Canadian and Middle East markets are booming. The 72-year-old company has branched into Suzhou, China.
Graham got a nod from Business Week earlier this year, making the list of the fastest growing small companies.
We've got a call into Graham to get some comment from the company on the recognition. We'll be sure to pass that along as it comes to us.
